Overview

Shakespeare’s murderous tragedy is seen anew in Davenant’s Restoration-era adaptation which delighted audiences for most of the 18th-century. This special engagement, with music performed by Folger Consort, features Helen Hayes Award-winners Ian Merrill Peakes and Kate Eastwood Norris, seen anew as the tragically ambitious  Macbeth and Lady Macbeth.
